The assumption that it's only microscopic has been proven time and time 
again to not be true for many people. Not just a few nuts or "true 
believers." The point of photography has nothing to do with lens 
performance in one way. That's for sure. But on the other hand, if you have 
a choice to own a Rembrandt, or a reproduction, which would you choose, 
even if some people couldn't tell the difference (and assuming you could)?
